000054934 520__ $$aIt is generally agreed that increasing agricultural productivity is critical to stimulating the rate of economic growth in Africa.  There are many important and often complementary determinants of agricultural productivity. In this paper, we focus on fertilizer, without intending to imply that it is the only or most significant productivity determinants. Other key factors are seed technology, adequate water availability, labor, agronomic and other farmer management practices, and choice of crops to grow.
